Division I - Biology, Chemistry, and Process Engineering
Division I comprises twenty KIT research institutes, the KIT Department of Chemistry and Biosciences and the KIT Department of Chemical and Process Engineering as well as the Helmholtz Research Field Information with P2 - Natural, Artificial and Cognitive Information Processing (NACIP) und P3 - Materials Systems Engineering (MSE).
Together we are focusing on our new research theme "Material and energy cycles in circular economy, life science engineering, process technology and digitalization". In this way, we research and teach the latest processes and methods of material and energy conversion for the circular economy and build a synergistic bridge to the life sciences. In terms of content, the size scales are addressed both theoretically and experimentally from nanogram synthesis to the near-industrial ton scale. All research in Division I is geared to the requirements of a resource-efficient data-based society.
Professor Dr. Andrea Robitzki has been Head of Division I since February 15th, 2020,
